I was bang in the middle, about a foot behind the sound desk. Logically I would have thought the best place for sound in the venue...
yes,that is normally the best spot . Try upstairs next time if you can.

I'd love to say The Kills were great last night, but due to the appalling sound at X-tra, it's hard to say.

Not the first time either - I'm not going to waste my hard earned on that venue anymore.
mhm, the last time when there was paul kalkbrenner, sound was fine?!
same with belle & sebastian and morcheeba.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

sisters of mercy gig at the xtra was pretty good but the sound quality was terrible, more due to xtra than the sisters. not the first time a gig has been ruined for me at the xtra due to useless sound quality

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Right, don0t know what the problem there is. The second half of the gig was much better.

i'll most probably be at the dEUS one! and also at dEUS in neuchatel on the 6th
https://www.petzitickets.ch/event_de...event_id=20420

thurston moore, i thought i was going but it's on the same date as FAQ's gig in Aarau
http://www.kiff.ch/de/kiff-gesamtpro...0--0--800.html
and i think i'm probably going there, as the partying will surely be better!

i had some friends seeing smashing pumpkins in london a few weeks ago and they were very disappointed (and they are pretty big fans). so i'm not going (to be fair, i wouldn't go anyway as i'm not crazy about them)

we seem to like similar music, so feel free to come and say hi tomorrow at Fakir's show in kaffi für dich (details a few posts above).

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Hi Crimson, I'll see I will see about monday night, tho i tend to work late at the moment. I'll def be at dEUS tho, my fav band! That should be ace. it woul dbe good to go to the show on the 6th as well but, work!

Shame to hear your friends didnt like the pumpkins recently, i had friends at copenhagen, manchester and london gigs and they were nothing but loving the shows. they are the band that usually suprise me most at shows with how amazing they are, but i shall see!

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

The Musical Box performs Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" on sunday 29th january 2012 at the Kongresshaus Zürich.

The Musical Box is a highly professional canadian Genesis tribute band. They bring the early Genesis years - when Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett were still in the band - back to life. They recreate their vintage shows as original as possible. The sounds, the sights, the costumes, the lights, the everything. They are very approved by the original band. Phil Collins even played a show or two with them. This time they will play the "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" show in its entirety. It's rumoured that original Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett will join them for the encores!

documentary:

with phil:


Now I'm selling 2 tickets for this show because I bought too many. I will be there too. It's row 9, a little left of the center in the highest priceclass, seated. I sell them both together for 220 swiss francs in total. That's the original price. I will not charge any postal delivery costs but require payment in advance, preferably paypal. I would send them out immediately after having received the money.
